JOHN BUTCHER (saxophones)
DOMINIC LASH (double bass)
JOHN RUSSELL (acoustic guitar)
Butcher/Lash/Russell combine intense investigations of their instruments' possibilities with bold but delicately poised interplay. All three players push the possibilities of acoustic instruments to their limits, sometimes resulting in sounds of an almost electronic quality, but always retaining an acoustic warmth. Their music is nimble and surprising; with three hands on the tiller changes of direction can happen at any moment: the atmosphere can suddenly change from the hushed and still to the dense and charged, or indeed vice versa.
